Contrary to what many believe, Buddhist meditation is not just about closing down sensory doorways – including thought and those of the mind – and going into some tightly managed place of perceptual deprivation.
Blocking the ‘enter here’ doorways of eye, nose, tongue, ear, body and mind may lead to moments of non-struggle.
Opening those doorways wide and embracing all that enters, you’ll find nothing can save you from growth . . . you’ll no longer remain as you were.
At any moment your meditation space may be a cozy cushion or a launching pad.
The choice is yours.
